That courage that Dos Santos is referring to was on display in his first fight against Miocic in 2014. The two waged an all-time classic, going the distance in a bloody back-and-forth slugfest. The Brazilian emerged victorious but three years later, Miocic has evolved and now claims the title of baddest man on the planet.
“I’m going to go out there and do my job. I worked way too hard to win that belt and I’m not giving it up,” Miocic said.
